``Discretely ending the year I'': Computing Algebraic Matroids

Algebra & Discrete Mathematics

Speaker: Zvi Rosen, UC Berkeley
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Mon, Jun 9 2014, 3:10PM

Algebraic matroids characterize the combinatorial structure of an algebraic variety. By decorating the matroid with circuit polynomials and base degrees, we capture even more information about the variety and its coordinate projections. In this talk, we will introduce algebraic matroids, discuss algorithms for their computation, and present some motivating examples.

This is part I of the ``Discretely ending the year event'' Part II is the key note speaker followed by reception.
